Creepy religious horror.
24 September 2008 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"The Night God Screamed" is obviously inspired by murderous activities of Charles Manson and his 'family'.The film is unavailable at this present time on DVD.It mixes relentless suspense and unsettling undertones of religious fanaticism.Jeanne Crain stars as the widow of a murdered preacher who is later systematically stalked and terrorised by the same crazed religious cult once led by twisted Jesus freak Billy Joe Harlan and responsible for her husbands death.Very effective suspense flick which easily maintains a nail-biting sense of tension.The central performance of Jeanne Crain is excellent.She plays the woman on the edge of total breakdown.All in all "The Night God Screamed" is a well paced,highly effective and suspenseful little shocker steeped in a chilling,uneasy sense of twisted religious mania.
